Can you count how many times youve heard this phrase?
This phrase plays a lot of importance and holds a lot of meaning in my life. I often tell myself that everything happens for a reason. The reason for that is, in my life, there have been many times where I question myself “why did this happen?” or “what was the reasoning behind that?” I then try to remember how strong my faith is, that everything will be okay, and that in the long run I will soon find out the answers to those questions I was asking myself. It may not be right away, but in time I’ve always been able to look back and say see, everything does happen for a reason. For instance, when one door closes, another door opens. Sometimes the people who come into your life are put there for a reason. There are a couple of people I can think of, that if i hadn’t been at that certain place and at that particular time, I would have never met them. I strongly feel that every challenge ive gone through has made me either learn a life lesson, or made me a stronger person. I put together a little collage of inpirational says or words that have helped me along the way.
Why is it that six simple words can be so hard to believe when we are being challenged?! If you were to tell me nine years ago when I was a young single mom that I would be able find my soul mate who loves my son and I unconditionally, and would be able to provide a home for my son I wouldn’t of believed you. When I look back at all the hard times and how far I’ve come I realized all these things happened for a reason! Every challenge that I have faced has made me a stronger person. Whether it was going out of my comfort zone to try something new, or something scary and unexpected knocking at my door, something beautiful always came out of it. These images on my board symbolize pieces of my life that I never saw coming.
